Malossi PHBG Hobbit Kit Questions.

I'm upgrading to the 21mm PHBG kit on my hobbit. How is this air cleaner supposed to fit in the hole? is it possible to install this kit with the air cleaner and still use the snorkel?

I think people cut out the snorkel for big carb and filter combos ???

Ditch the snorkel for a 21. Best to invest in a new intake and hang it outside for access.

I know it would be way easier, but apparently I like doing things the hard way. Hahaha. Plus I like the look of a stock hobbit. The goal is to build a sleeper.

take a look in the wiki, cheetah details a subframe mod that might work 4u.

Thanks Pat. I've seen a few subrame mods. I'll check this one out. Currently working through the PHBG tuning wiki. From what I've been reading, with my setup, I'm working my way towards some overheating issues. But I'll tackle that when/if it comes.

What’s your setup? May be able to point you in the right direction.

First thing check to make sure your not overheating because of an air leak to timing issue.

Also what Needle did it come with? W7 is okay. W16 is a pain to tune. Taper on the w9 seems to have the best range without and rich or lean spots.

Its a w7 needle.

Current setup is...

DR 70cc cylinder

Stock head with decomp

Proma circuit pipe

Notched variator pa50ii ramps, pa50i weights

21mm malossi phbg kit with intake

95 main jet, but still tuning so that will likely change.

New bearings and seals, no airleaks.

Stock ignition, point gap at .016 ( can't adjust timing other than changing point gap)

Re: Malossi PHBG Hobbit Kit Questions.

You should be close to a 95. Usually between 94-95 with that kit and a proma. Unless your at some odd elevation. And like 52 idol jet. Your in the ball park.

I think your heat issue is from your head. I would check it for leaks. Check it where it meets up and at the decomp. However even if there are no leaks the original head dose not cool that well.

I always recommend 70cc Puch head and modify it or buy the one already modified for a hobbit. You will have to make spacers or get Puch cylinder studs. But the difference in temps a amazing. JBot has a tread on how to do it somewhere.

DRs run hot. Good advice^^ and do the WOT plug chop to make sure you're not running lean. Easy to do with a PHBG. Better to err on the rich side with the main jet.

Budget for an aftermarket variator ASAP and upgrade the clutch springs to 1500 to keep it from dogging during decel. The only advantage to using the airbox is running in rain. You'll eventually get tired of wrestling with the frame and extracting the carb for every adjustment.
